What interests you about the digital marketing arena?
It’s always changing and it gives me the opportunity to challenge myself and learn more and more every day!

What band would you pay lots of money to go see?
I recently paid an insane amount of money to see Queen (with Adam Lambert) and Coldplay both performing at the CenturyLink Center this summer.

What is your favorite TV show of all time?
“Smallville.” It was in its peak on the CW when I was in high school, and I have a huge crush on the lead man, Tom Welling. I’m currently watching the series for the third time on Hulu.

Be curious, ask questions and never stop learning!

Roja, because I love tacos and the atmosphere is fun.

Paris, France. Ever since eighth grade, when I started to study French, I’ve wanted to see the Eiffel Tower lit up at night. 

Dogs or cats?
Dogs, because of puppies.

Go-getter.

What was your favorite toy as a kid?
That’s a tough one! I’d have to go with board games. I loved playing all the classic games like Clue, Life and Monopoly with my siblings.

What do you like about working at SKAR?
All the nice, hardworking people! The collaborative atmosphere is great.
